As a father holds their child’s hand, there is a feeling of belonging and safety. Both parties, the father and the child, are being satisfied. The dad is fulfilling his purpose as the protector and as the source of many of the child’s needs. The child is also being satisfied with surety and love from the father.
What a blessing it is to know that the God of creation longs for this relationship, this intimacy, these kinds of moments with us!
For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.Isaiah 41:13 KJV
Out of the 66 books, 1,189 chapters, and 31,102 verses of the bible this is just one verse that exudes so much intimacy! Just a snippet of the relationship that our Father longs for with us. Just a glimpse of His love and nearness desired. Just a bit of His touch and voice available to us.
I encourage us today to lean into the intimacy of our Father, our God, our Maker, our Creator, our Lord, the One Who loves us and see the potential we have as children. Let us take advantage of the Father and child relationship today!
What a privilege! ❤ -DeHonee
